3 DIY Exfoliating Facial Masks

Exfoliating is one of the most important steps when it comes to skincare. As we age, the skin doesn't naturally exfoliate as often, so it needs a little help. The immediate benefit to exfoliating is that it removes dead skin and encourages skin cell renewal, for younger looking skin. If you incorporate an exfoliating scrub into your skincare regimen once a week, the long term benefits include a reduction of dark spots, scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. Best of all, with regular at-home exfoliation, you don't need to spend a lot of money on expensive microdermabrasion treatments. With these easy-to-make DIY masks, you'll enjoy glowing, younger-looking skin with the added bonus of a fun and relaxing #selfcaresunday.

I've created three different DIY exfoliating masks to meet different skincare needs and to match different skin types. Each mask is formulated with an essential oil to enhance those skincare benefits. Though you could omit them and just use the first two ingr…

Nouveau Atelier de Chocolat


I'm always up for discovering a local candy shop or chocolate shop, and Ken is always more than willing to support my addiction. When I lived in Frederick, MD, I had Zoe's chocolate downtown. Now that I'm in Oklahoma again, I needed a replacement. Granted there are a few candy and chocolate shops around Tulsa, but when it comes to a charming boutique chocolatier, Nouveau in the Rose District Broken Arrow definitely leads the way. From beautifully decorated pieces to delicious and complex flavors, it has everything you'd want in a chocolate shop...and then some.







Ken and I tried quite a few of the different flavors. He loved the Irish Creme one the best, while loved the lavender (that pretty purple heart one pictured above). There was a passion fruit truffle I really liked too. We will definitely be going back to try more flavors!
 



The shop itself is so pretty and charming, with carved wood, red brick, and cafe tables where you can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee (good coffee) with your chocolates. There are plenty of unique packaged items as well, any of which would make for neat little gifts.

Nouveau not only made it into our list of places we'll return to but somewhere I have to go back to and somewhere I highly recommend you visit if you live in the Tulsa area.
